What Are You Doing This Weekend?

The weekend is approaching and we can’t be everywhere at once (as much as we try) however I thought we try highlighting events for this particular jam packed weekend!  Which one will you find yourself at?

Deadmau5: Meowington Hax Tour at Hollywood Palladium

He started yesterday at Hollywood with great success and will continue to play at the Palladium this weekend. Unfortunately the event is already sold out for tonight and tomorrow but Sunday is still available! Better get there quick Mau5 fans!

Penny Arcade Expo (PAX)
Seattle, Washington

What started as a small little convention turned into a full blown festivities for gamers of all type.  Best part about PAX is hanging with a bunch of like-minded folks.  Unfortunately tickets have sold out already, unless you have previously purchased them, hopefully you got your badge already!

Burning Man
Black Rock City, Nevada

Not quite the weekend but its Burning Man! An annual week long celebration of what many described as an experiment in community, radical self-expression, and radical self-reliance. There isn’t truly any words that can describe Burning Man

Staying at home and playing Borderlands

Borderlands is on sale at Steam for this weekend!  There is even an option to buy 4 copies for the price of 3!

What will you be doing this weekend?  Got an event you are going to?  Add to the comments below!

Borderlands is 75% off on Steam This Weekend

Aww man.. Steam weekend sales.. they usually hurt my wallet, now they can hurt yours too!  Normally $19.99, you can now get Borderlands for $4.99 or you can buy a 4 pack for you and your friends at the cost of $14.99 (its like buying 3 games and getting the 4th for free!).  Likewise the Game of the Year edition is also $7.99 (originally $29.99) and that too has the 4 pack option at the cost of $22.49.

What’s the difference between the two you may ask?  the Game of the Year edition comes with the following DLC:

  • Zombie Island of Dr. Ned
  • Mad Moxxi’s Underdome Riot
  • The Secret Armory of General Knoxx

Borderlands is a First person shooter with an RPG element that takes place in a futuristic western situation where you can be one of 4 mercenaries (with co-op no less).  I myself haven’t gotten very far, due to time schedules with my fellow players, but from what we did play it seemed like a lot of fun!  But don’t take my word on it, take a look at Metacritic site for more reviews from multiple publishers and players (81/100 for those wondering).
